Warming Counterplan DDI 2008 Turnstein    Valerie COUNTERPLAN/SO2 DA 1NC Observation 1  – Counterplan Text: The United States federal government should mandate the extraction  of carbon dioxide from factory emissions through carbon capture and storage. The United States federal  government should mandate the disposal of the removed carbon dioxide into the ocean. Observation 2  – the counterplan competes via the net benefit a. The plan drastically decreases SO2 emissions  Seth Dunn , 7/ 2k . Micropower: The Next Electrical Era. WORLDWAT C H A P E R 151. http://www.worldwatch.org/system/files/EWP151.pdf</span>. Micropower’s carbon-saving benefits could be sizable. Studies indicate that the United States could cut power plant carbon emissions by half or more by meeting new demand with microturbines, renewable energy, and fuel cells . In the developing world, where half of new power generation over the next 20 years is projected to be built, comprising some $1.7 trillion in capital investments, power sector carbon emissions are projected to triple under a business-as-usual scenario . RAND Corporation reports suggest that widescale adoption of distributed power could help lower this trajectory by as much as 42 percent. These steps would also cut emissions of sulfur oxides by as much as 72 percent

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
